Students at a Pflugerville, TX high school built this 144 square feet tiny home during the 2014/15 school year in a class combining both traditional Geometry and a construction class.
The home includes an open living room with a sleeping loft over the kitchen and bathroom area. There is also a small loft located over the covered porch. The kitchen includes a stainless steel sink, a match light 2 burner propane cook top, a mini-refrigerator, two GFCI outlets and a dedicated 20 amp circuit for a microwave. The bathroom includes a full size shower and toilet. Hot water is provided by a Rinnai instant heater. Interior trim is knotty pine sealed with clear “Deft” which brings out the grain in the wood. The exterior is cedar lap siding stained on both sides. Exterior trim is cedar as well.
The roof is a 26 gauge steel standing seam roof–leftover materials from a commercial office building which were donated to the school. The home was built using modified Tiny Tumbleweed Homes “Elm” plans. The students in the class used terms and formulas from the Geometry class almost every day during the school year and they built a truly outstanding tiny home.
